ChatGPT Professional is an experimental program being floated by OpenAI that is geared towards professional use. This program offers several key features that make it more suitable for professional applications than the regular version of ChatGPT. These features include always being available (with no blackout windows), fast responses from the model, and the ability to send as many messages as you need (at least 2X the regular daily limit).
If you are selected to participate in the program, the team will reach out to you to set up a payment process and a pilot. It’s important to keep in mind that this is an early experimental program that is subject to change, and that paid pro access is not currently generally available.
They currently have a questionnaire available through Google Docs that asks about your country and whether you have used ChatGPT before. Additionally, the team is interested in whether you are using the model for personal or professional use. They also ask about the most valuable thing you use ChatGPT for, and how upset you would be if you could no longer use the model.
Several of the questions in the questionnaire areas about pricing. The team is asking about your price sensitivity for the pro version of ChatGPT. They ask at what price (per month) you would consider ChatGPT to be so expensive that you would not consider buying it. Additionally, they ask at what price (per month) you would consider ChatGPT to be priced so low that you would feel the quality couldn’t be very good. They also ask at what price (per month) you would consider ChatGPT starting to get expensive, so that it is not out of the question, but you would have to give some thought to buying it. Finally, they ask at what price (per month) you would consider ChatGPT to be a bargain—a great buy for the money.
In summary, the ChatGPT Professional program is a potential experimental program that aims to provide more advanced features and capabilities for professional use, such as continuous availability, swift responses, and higher message volume limit. The team behind ChatGPT is also interested in understanding the user’s usage, location, the most valuable use of the model, and the user’s price sensitivity for the pro version of ChatGPT. If selected for the program, the team will reach out to the user to establish a payment process and initiate a pilot program.
